Hi. I’m no new my old user name was Optimus prime but I couldn’t log in to my account so my new name is ironhide(if you can tell I’m a big transformer fan) anyway my vft has a flower stalk! This is my first time having one flower. So if anyone could tell me how to harvest,collect the seed and sow it that would be great! And yes I am aware the flower makes them sluggish(fine with me I have 3 more)

If you feed 2 or 3 traps when the plant is blooming, it really helps offset the energy drain caused by the flowers.

As for harvesting and planting the seeds, you need to spend some time checking out the link at the top of the page:

OK I’ll have to see I don’t want my plant to go into shock. Did you ever get those capillaries seeds so we could trade. I just got a water wheel plant when It gets bigger I can give you a cutting

I have harvested a few capillaris seeds but those will go to other trades. I’ll have more in a week or two though. Don’t let the flower stalk go to waste, stick it upright in the soil and you might get some baby plants.
